There is a very strong Moon coming into fullness at 8:35 pm (PST) on May 5th. The Sun in grounded, earthy, sensual Taurus will shine its light to the Moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is known for intensity, whether it is deep truth and honesty or wounding transformed into true power. Strong feelings are likely to be evoked in the next hours as we are drawn deep into our shadow material. The gift is the possibility of seeing and transforming our wounded patterns while opening ourselves to solid comfort and security. The shadow risk is that we fall into our wound more deeply, stubborn and stuck. This Moon is at 16 degrees and 01 minutes. If you have fixed sign planets around the mid degrees you will be more strongly affected, yet we are all feeling it now.
I love to meditate with Full Moons, drawing in the energies deeply, consciously co-creating with the power of Light and reflection. This Moon is ‘perigee’ which means it is the closest it gets to the earth and will be large and bright as it comes up over the horizon at dusk, definitely worth looking at.
Although it would be appropriate to meditate any time during the day to connect with the positive energies of this Moon, I would suggest beginning around 8 pm. Begin by calling in the energy of the Sun, feeling the qualities as you intuitively feel them, but perhaps asking for strength, connection to the earth, sensuality, security, ease and flow to run through you. Then call in the energy of the Moon, drawing in depth, intensity, truth, transformation, integrity and power. Imagine these feelings and energies mixing within you, asking that you be a vehicle for their highest expression. Both signs are related to financial security, abundance and wealth. Gratitude for what you have and a wish for security and comfort for all sentient beings might be an appropriate affirmation as well.
